"In this documentary Maryam D'Abo sits down for one-on-one interviews with Ursula Andress, Honor Blackman, Luciana Paluzzi, Jill St. John, Lois Chile, Maude Adams, Carey Lowell, Halle Berry and Rosamund Pike. The discusions center on the changing role of the Bond girl thorugh the series. It is most definately recommended for any fan of the cinematic Bond."

"I always thought Bond Girls were Dream Girls, and that Maryam D'Abo was the loveliest of them all! Whether playing vamps, ladies in distress, or a...kicking b...ches, these lasses brought the movie's best fun, for what is the ultimate reason behind any cool car, sharp suit, or newest gadget? Why, THE GIRL, of course!!!
Ms D'Abo proves with her documentary (she wrote, produced and directed it) that Bond Girls ("Women"?, "Sexual Mates"?, "Female Persons"?, "Whatever-politically-correct-idiocy-they'll-come-up-next"?) are not merely attractive, but good, intelligent actresses playing the toughest part there is in their craft: the fantasy everyone wishes to get or be. It may sound simple, but it's an Herculean, ehr... Aphrodithean task! How many thespians can convincingly play a drunkard? A cab driver? An honest cop? Quite a lot, to be sure. What good-looking woman can describe herself as the most gorgeous creature that ever walked on Earth? No one in her right mind. Well now ...try playing that!
Morons who criticize these brave actresses successfully undertaking this most thankless role, either don't get the joke or carry a burdensome yoke themselves; mainly envy or frustration. And producers who afterwards belittle them as "bimbos" are nothing but misogynist cretins; the very sexist pigs feminists should be quarrelling with! As for me, plain moviegoer, I gratefully say long live Bond Girls and the actresses that enlivened them! May they always get the parts they crave, for their proven skills deserve them!"
